Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had the most awesome hosts/guides ,very informative, we felt really safe and they made us feel confident and made the whole experience one to remember, so thank you guys. Another great way to see the Bay of islands, and for 10-12mins, this is definitely worth your money.We also did the 4.5 boat cruise and that was fantastic but the parasailing was our favorite.
My daughter, was her first time to Paihia and parasailing. It was the best experience i have had with my teenage daughter and not only did we pay for the parasailing, we paid for the video of our day and I would highly recommend the cam video, and memories forever.This is most definitely a must do when you visit the beautiful Bay of islands. Thanks guys you were awesome, I will definitely be back with the rest of my family.

There’s a first time for everything, and that included Parasailing over the Bay of Islands. To say it was exhilarating is an understatement. So smooth and quiet as we sailed 13 hundred feet above the water. Incredible views and experience

Fantastic experience we thought we would never be able to do! Thoroughly enjoyed it and would very strongly recommend it to anyone with a small sense of adventure. Completely safe and dry unless you choose to get dunked at the end!
Fantastic views of the bay like you'd not see otherwise!
Guys running it were excellent - safe and understanding.

Captain was terrible
No life jackets offered or given when you boarded for adults or children unless they were getting you ready for the parasail!!!
As soon as they collected you the
Captain turned on the music so high you couldn’t enjoy the ride - he just sang is own kareoke - I am guessing he didn’t want to be asked any questions or interact with passengers
His feet were up on the side of the boat when the boat was been driven?? Not professional at all
When we were dropped off to Russell he boat slammed against the wharf - lucky I had just moved my fingers!!!
Wouldn’t recommend this amateur business - shame
It’s the only one to go on up there

Hi there, That is unfortunate that you felt this way. Usually our customers enjoy some music on the boat as the whole trip can be up to an hour and a half on the boat. The skipper can't hear customers talking as he drives right next to the engine and this makes it very difficult to have conversations or interact with customers (if this is what you were trying to). The crew is there for any questions or to interact with. We clearly state in our safety brief to keep your hands inside the boat at all times. Especially if there is surge on the wharf as they dock the boats. It also states in our safety brief that you will only be wearing a life jacket for the Parasailing, but if you would like to wear a life jacket for the boat duration to ask for this. However I hope you enjoyed the Parasailing part?
